Basically, if an insurance company demutualises and its policyholders or members dispose of their listed shares in the company, for tax purposes the acquisition cost of the shares is based on the lesser of:

  • (a) the embedded value or net tangible asset value of the company; and
  • (b) the value of the company based on the total first trading day price of all shares in the company.
  • Other tax consequences result from disposals of other interests and from other events in connection with the demutualisation.
